Cebu is abound with churches. The ratio of the churches to the towns of Cebu is one-on-one, and in the city of Cebu, one could just turn around a corner and find one. And inspite of the numbers, the churches are not empty symbols of Christianity here, but they are mostly always full on Sundays which make them thriving and vibrant communities.

Before international brand hotels came to Cebu, Montebello was one of the first nice hotels established in Cebu. I think it first came into operation sometime in the early 1970's. Although probably considered old, still it has a certain charm that can still compete with the new kids on the block today. In fact many Cebuanos probably will go nostalgic remembering some important events of their lives being held here.
What I like about Montebello is that it does not feel like a hotel. It's more like feeling like a guest or visitor of a relative or friend who has this grand beautiful villa. It has a spacious garden and a medium sized swimming pool. And although their restaurants are not quite grand or fancy, but from what little food I've tried, they were quite tasteful...

Mandaue City is the industrial hub of Cebu. It is the home of probably 90% of the manufacturing companies in Cebu. It is vibrant and is still phenomenally growing. Business establishments gobble up every remaining space available and traffic has become horrendous. The price of progress indeed...
